My name is Kevin Gates and was both born and currently reside in southeastern Connecticut with my wife, Rebecca, and my daughter Natalie. Since 2006, I've served as a tables games dealer/supervisor at the Mohegan Sun Resort & Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut. I also act as a freelance graphic designer and strive to someday own and operate my own digital design and marketing studio.
I enjoy being both creative and artistic. Taking on various graphic design projects is a great outlet for me to exercise both of these qualities. My strengths include photo manipulation, product design, web design, creating logos, and motorsports graphics. I am very motivated and I meet deadlines without sacrificing the quality of my work.
My interests include spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy rooting for my favorite NASCAR lifelong idol Richard Petty and his racing organization Richard Petty Motorsports of Concord, North Carolina. In my spare time, I operate and host a fan website in support of the Petty Family and their various charitable endeavors. Producing work for "The King" and his race team's sponsors has been a "dream come true" experience for me. I'm hoping the relationship I've established will propel me to greater opportunities within the motorsports industry. My other interests include American muscle cars, riding my dirt bike, and playing the guitar.
I would best describe myself as laid back, friendly, reliable, and loyal. I am easy to communicate with and work well with others. I always strive to offer excellent customer service to my clients. I have a lot of pride in my work and welcome feedback. I would make a great addition to any marketing team.
At this time, I am open to full time opportunities within a reasonable drive. However, I also eagerly welcome any freelance work opportunities. If you're interested in hiring me for a project, please don't hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you. Read Less

"When I started my mobile DJ business in 2009 I knew that I wanted to have a website that would stand out from the rest. Having seen the work of Kevin Gates, I knew that I wanted him to design my logo and website. He took my basic ideas and guidelines and put his artistic skill to work. The end result was a very unique professional logo as well as a website that I certainly could not have built myself. His level of professionalism is second to none and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for design work." - Tim Frederick, owner Shockwave Entertainment
"I am proud to say that I have had the opportunity to work with Kevin and have him design my logo for my new business. His work is absolutely stunning, and his attention to detail is remarkable.
